Reception

The approach to learning is through play in Reception.  We value play as a way for your child to consolidate and practise his/her learning and for us to observe how your child learns and to note his/her secure learning.  The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum was revised in 2012 which set more challenging outcomes for the children.

In Reception we have a class 0rangutan called Ginger.  The role of Ginger is to introduce, guide and challenge.  Every day there is at least one Ginger challenge to do with an adult. The learning areas have challenges as suggestions for learning at different times in the week.  These are completed independently with an adult moving between the areas offering support and asking questions.  In this way learning is posed as a question to be solved.  This encourages your child to give a purpose to his/her learning and then to work out how to tackle solving different types of problems.  We give children a chance to reflect, evaluate and talk about their learning so they are better prepared to face future challenges.  In addition, we encourage children to support each other as experts or teachers.  A child can only teach if they have a good understanding of the learning.
